From Vanity to Desk...A Teen's Work Space

Just about six years ago my sister Kim picked up this cute little vanity at a yard sale for only $5. I wasn't sure if it was going to fit in Grace's room but for a measly five bucks I thought what the heck...so she bought it.

I cleaned it up, sanded it down and repainted the vanity in a Watermelon color for Grace's "little girl" room.

Not wanting to part with the piece, I needed to give it a new look, and purpose, to go with the freshly painted bedroom of my now 14 year old daughter. First the vanity received a coat of Lagoon blue from Rustoleum and then it was paired with an old shelf which has been in my family for as long as I can remember. The shelf was painted white and sits perfectly above the computer monitor.

I was lucky enough to find this fuzzy office style chair at Home Goods to replace the vanity chair Kim had bought to go with the piece. It was just a little too small for my 5'9" and still growing daughter. 

An inexpensive gooseneck lamp for task lighting was purchased at Walmart. The daisy mirrors were another Home Goods find.

The original drawer pulls are painted in a nickel and the top of the piece in a crisp white.

The perfect place for Grace to organize, study and hopefully get some straight "B's"!!!

Stay tuned for the full bedroom reveal coming soon!
In the meantime wishing you all a terrific week!

  1. Great job and i love the color. I like all the accessories that you found to go with her computer desk.


  2. I love it. I bet your TALL daughter loves it all too! Great job!

  3. Barbara, love the color and I know Grace loves it! The cute chair was a great find!

  4. So beautiful Barbara. Love that color too. Great job.

  5. That desk is a treasure. I have one similar that belonged to my husband's grandmother. It's an ugly stained color. It's been on my "to~paint" list for a long time. You've convinced me. I also love those cute mirrors on the wall.

  6. What a lovely piece! Love the color!

  7. Barbara, I remember when you got the desk and painted it that beautiful color. Wow, Grace is certainly growing up and I bet she loves it. The new color looks perfect for a teen, a straight "A" project..Happy Wednesday..xxoJudy
